Denver is one of the few international airports without a rail link — a vital source of efficient and low-carbon transportation. The new expansion will bring important new facilities to the airport and will connect it to the city core at Union Station with a FasTrack line terminating at Calatrava’s new arched transit station. The rail line will travel across a new rail bridge over Pena Boulevard and then heads straight into the heart of the commercial plaza and adjacent hotel.

Calatrava, who has become known for his sweeping arches and impressive facades (and particularly, for his rail stations), will add his iconic style to the iconic airport as well the city of Denver.
